The secret of the Rijksmuseum
The Rijksmuseum is world renowned and exhibits some of the world’s most important paintings – think Nachtwacht . There is another treasure not so hidden, however many do not end up seeing – The Cuypers library.
This library is the largest and oldest art historical library in the Netherlands and used by art students and many art historians.
Wander around the hallways and up the staircases and you feel like you are actually in a Harry Potter movie. There are many hidden details to discover or you can just pick up a book and learn about art and history. Or just get your camera out and take pictures.
The library is open for everyone who wants to visit and see some of Amsterdam’s finest history.
